as TV's Doogie Howser.
I watched the show as a kid with the rest of my family. I remember being obsessed with his hair, and wanting to touch it.
I imagined him dressed in his doctor's uniform, and we would hold hands and kiss. I was a silly child.
But he resembled every blond-haired, blue-eyed boy I had as friends and crushes growing up.
And since I was convinced that I would grow up to be a doctor too, I thought he was the perfect man for me. I got a real thrill when he came out as gay several years ago, and I hope that one day I can actually meet him.
